Appointment Summary Zimlet – Know what your Calendar looks like for the day

By | July 7, 2010
Every day, when you first login, this Zimlet scans your calendar and sends out a summary email about the current day’s events. This Zimlet helps both frequent and lite calendaring users in different ways: 1. For power-users, this is like having a personal assistant; who summarizes appointments for the day, providing a concrete idea as to how many meetings you have. 2. For general-users, the Zimlet helps in reminding you that there is a meeting to prepare for (in case you've forgotten) To make it easier to read, the appointments are sorted and divided along two simple categories:  Those that need your immediate attention (e.… Read more »

Revisiting the Zimbra REST API…

By | February 3, 2010
For years, the Zimbra Collaboration Suite (ZCS) has exposed mailbox data via REST. And lately, a few customers have asked about the Zimbra REST API (e.g. How is the API used? What methods are available? How does the Zimbra REST API compare to the Zimbra SOAP API?). So I thought it would be good to revisit the topic.… Read more »

Yahoo! Emoticons in Zimbra Mail

By | August 5, 2009
For the last post in the Power Zimlet Series (Attach Email, Ignore Conversations, Contact Organizer, Task Reminders), we are ending on a lighter note. Zimlet 5: Emoticons in Email Who doesn't love emoticons? They are core part of life online and I admit am a huge fan of them. Historically Zimbra has always supported emoticons - but only in IM.   For ZCS 6.0 (coming very soon) we have made some enhancements to the Zimlet platform (including the ability to create new 'application tabs') that enable us to now support emoticons in email compose as well. When you write an email you can simply enter your standard text emoticon [example:… Read more »

A Zimlet for Highly Effective People: Task Reminders

By | July 29, 2009
In the last 3 posts in the Power Zimlet series we covered tools for improving email and contacts: contact organizer, ignoring conversations and attaching emails to messages.  Today we are turning to a new application in ZCS that many, including myself, find incredibly useful - Tasks. Zimbra Collaboration Suite has had the Tasks application for some time now, but as of yet it doesn't support reminders.  And without reminders it is hard to keep track of Tasks at hand, making it sometimes hard to use.  This new Zimlet fills that gap by providing a reminder digest once a day. Zimlet 4: Tasks Reminders How the Zimlet works:… Read more »
